Like my nickname says, is am a total noob.
Nevertheless I decide to get my lights wireless and after watching a lot of videos on youtube I ordered a Pi Zero W and some Sonoff Basic and Touch devices.
With the power of Youtube I managed to flash Tasmota on every Sonoff device and get openhab2 and mosquitto running. I am also able to toggle all of the sonoff devices via Safari.
Now I have the problem that I’ve got absolutely no clue how to bind the devices into openhab2. I know that there are many threads about that and there are hundreds of explanations out there how to actually do that. I guess I have read all of them. Twice. But I cannot figure out what to do.
Everything I have done was by following step by step tutorials where I only had to change the IP address in the codes. But since every setup is unique I have reached my limit.
So my question, or even my desperate please is:
Could anyone PLEASE write down the right lines and where I have to put them so my Sonoff devices will work with openhab2? Some step by step “sonoff for dummies”.
Except for my mqtt.cfg all of my files are empty.
Thats my mqtt.cfg
mqtt:broker.url=tcp://192.168.0.196:1883 mqtt:broker.clientId=openhab mqtt:broker.retain=true mqtt:broker.async=false
I copied that from the forum.
Here is also a screenshot of the MQTT settings of one Sonoff Touch device:
Maybe some pros are laughing at me while reading my noobish poste but I am totally depressed already because I am trying to get that stuff running for over 8 weeks now.
I really please you guys not to write something like “check the following link”. Trust me, I already have checked them all. I would be very thankful for a step by step explanation including every code is needed like rules, items and sitemaps. When I will have one device working it will be a lot easier for me to get the others running.
If there is any more information you need to help me, please tell me.
dumb, desperate me
